US History & Senior Humanities

I have a BA in History from SUNY Purchase, and a Masters in Teaching from Johns Hopkins University. I am also a musician. I fell in love with reading history in college. I love working with children and helping them find meaning from history. I was friends with the spouse of a teacher who was working at McLean. I heard it was small school, and less traditional than most high schools in the area. I also heard that McLean served students with mild learning differences and I thought the mission of the school was something I could believe in and support. 
My passion is connecting with people and helping young learners find a voice. I enjoy working in a setting that values collaboration, academics, and diversity.   

K-12 College Preparatory School Supporting Bright Students’ Individual Strengths and Challenges.

McLean School is an independent, co-educational, K-12 day school serving Maryland, Washington, and Virginia. McLean has for over sixty years been helping students realize their full potential by providing a comprehensive college preparatory program that emphasizes small classes and differentiated instruction. We embrace both traditional learners and ones with mild to moderate learning challenges – dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and challenges related to anxiety and executive functioning. Many of our students excel in some areas while benefiting from support in others.
